we got the bus from flores to guatemala city at 10am this morning....up at 7 cos we needed to get breakie and ready to leave....we had pancakes wit freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee for 2.50 euro..cheap eh....

the bus from flores was to take just 8 hours...haha...it was a first class bus but the air conditioning wasnt working so we were constantly sweating for the whole trip.not the most comfortable situation to be in...

5 hours into the trip the wheel started making a strange noise...turns out there was a bolt that was missing on the wheel so it was too dangerous to drive...we had to make a stop on the side of the road where we fixed it up. the bus journey turned out to be 10 hours instead....we were to meet vicky at 6 and at 8 we arrived...she was waitin in a car outside...cos apparently where we were stopping was a dangerous area....

we were so excited to go meet the girls...and see vicky too.we hadnt seen her in over a year so it was so nice to hear her friendly voice again.was also so good to meet somebody from guatemala cos based on first sight it looks like a dangerous city.

we went straight to vicky,s house..really nice house..all the family were there and of course the girlies too...they couldnt get over how skinny ailise was....apparently it is the skinniest they have ever seen her.they didnt notice a difference in my weight..mayb i put on weight and they were afraid to say so...hahaha....we apparently have a good colour too...

we had some vodka with the girls..her mam was very excited to see us cos like us she drinks vodka...after 3 drinks my head was light...see i have turned into a lightweight now...

we stayed up chatting until about 1 am...had a typical guatemalan dish called pache....which apparently takes all day to prepare and is a typical thing to eat at xmas so our arrival seemed very important to them which was really nice...we are all sleepin in the same bedroom now...so great to see the girlios again...but the days of just ailise and niamh are now over...sad times...good ones to come though....
